Snag this HD projector for just $155 (save $75) – CNET


The budget market has long been awash with ultracheap “HD” projectors, but there’s a catch: The vast majority of these models don’t offer true 1080p resolution — they just accept an HD signal and dumb it down to a lesser resolution, which looks all the worse when you blow the image up on your wall or in your backyard. That’s why the Vankyo V630 for just $155 at Woot (33% off) caught our eye. It’s got 1,920×1,080-pixel native resolution, meaning it should be delivering a pixel-for-pixel 1080p image. 

Now, we haven’t tested the Vankyo, but its spec sheet is otherwise solid considering the budget price. You can project an image of 46-300 inches at 5 to 30 feet. This model also has a 5,000:1 contrast ratio and 50,000 hours of lamp life. You’ll pay another $6 for shipping (unless you’re an Amazon Prime member — Woot is an Amazon subsidiary) and there’s a limit of three units per customer.

And if you don’t care about that native 1080p resolution — say, if this is designed strictly for kids’ consumption — Vankyo’s lesser, non-HD projectors are also available at Woot for as little as $69.
